Why didn't Arizona Politicians put the new immigration bill on a ballot instead of shoving it through?

Aren't Republicans the same people saying that Obama so-called shoved health care reform down our throats? Hypocrisy? Do you think it would have passed if they put it on a ballot? Let's not go to polls, because we know that nobody knows who is actually participating in the polls.

It wouldn't have mattered. Almost everyone in Arizona agrees with the bill, except those who are illegal, or related to an illegal immigrant. On the contrary, I'm sure if we had the health care bill on a ballot, there's a very likely chance it wouldn't have passed.

A state finally has the guts to do what the feds have failed to do for decades now. Both parties are a miserable failure in this category, and thats to do something to stem the flow of illegal invaders across our borders, to protect our citizens and their property which is supposed to be the number one job of the...

70% of the people in the state were in favor of it; the legislature was merely reflecting public will. No need for a ballot.

You mean like how they crammed the Income Tax Amendment down our throats? And Social Security? And Medicare? And Heath Care? If you do not like it, run for office. Assuming you are not an illegal. In that case, if you do not like it, leave. PLEASE....
